Badly polluted shallow wells or mud-holes are often the only source of water for people in developing countries. Unsafe water is the primary cause of disease, poverty, and hunger throughout the world. Women and children are primarily affected, spending up to six hours each day collecting water that makes them sick.
We’re using clean water to lay the foundation of a healthy, developing economy. Sustainable projects start with community education, community investment, and fiscal know-how. Our trainings provide a forum to address water & sanitation, well maintenance, budgeting, leadership, and empowering women.
It’s simple, we’re bringing clean water to those who need it and it all starts with you. Take action, start a campaign and begin raising money for clean water. 100% of the money you raise will go directly to funding clean water projects. Everyone wants to help and the best way is through funding projects.
Project Humanity is currently working to provide 5,000 people access to clean drinking water in northern Uganda. Our goal is to reduce the prevalence of waterborne disease in children and vulnerable populations. Project Humanity operates on the principle of simplicity and community-led development. We use locally procured materials to ensure that repair parts are available, and we rely on Ugandan engineers and labor from local communities to provide employment and skills training.
We empower communities to take ownership of their water source by asking for financial contribution and significant collaboration. We educate each community about sanitation, maintenance, budgeting, and bookkeeping. These trainings help create co-funding goals, establish a water management committee, write by-laws to govern the water source, and implement preliminary sanitation measures. We keep working with communities years after water projects are implemented.
